All weakfish, all the time! I am taking a break from the offshore fishing
this week as the weather seems too erratic for my small craft. Besides I did two
zeros last week, one at the Monster Ledge on Friday and a short effort at
Barnegat Ridge on Saturday. No life, no birds, no readings, so we came back
inside and in the middle of the day with boats and jet skis running through my
slick we caught weakfish.
I will be running two trips a day for weakfish and all the other species that
gather in our live grass shrimp chum slick. That fishing has been
excellent....still with 15 to 20 inch fish being the norm......and no sign of
slowing down. As the tides are this week, the afternoon trips also have a chance
to try for stripers and blackfish using the same technique out on the oceanside
of the Inlet jetty.
Availibility is as follows: Thurs, Aug 9, 5AM to 10AM, and 10:30 AM to 3:30
PM, Fri, Aug 10, 5AM to 10AM and 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM, Sat and Sun, Aug 11 and
12, the mornings are booked, so I have the 11:30 AM to 4:30 PM slots available
on both of those days. Cost is divided by however many people sign up, a maximum
of 4 anglers. If we fish the jetty and the bay the cost is a little more for the
boat and the trip is six hours instead of five hours. We also use a whole second
batch of live shrimp. Call, don't email if you would like a spot. Thank you.
